HeatMaster / Re: Replace or repair refractory nozzle?
« on: March 02, 2019, 10:59:21 AM »
I finally got the replacement bricks yesterday, 3/1/19. I removed the old bricks; they broke into softball sized pieces. When I tried to install the new bricks they were too big! Now I was worried. It was supposed to get down to -3F that night. I called Heatmaster and explained my situation. Colin, at HM, got right on it. He contacted the local rep and had him come and cut the bricks down to size so I could get by until the correct size bricks could be sent out. The old bricks were straight sided, the new model design flares out. They had me up and running by 5pm. Kudos to the HM team!

When I took out the bricks that form the nozzle, the round bottom chamber started to fall apart. I  asked HM if they would send me those bricks with the new replacement nozzle bricks as they were as defective as the others.

Here are some picts of the removal process.

I used a 2by to push the nozzel bricks up from below.

The bricks being pushed up from below.

This is all that was left

There is insulation stuffed in outboard side of the holes. I used some rockwool in the new ones.

Notice the flared sides. The old ones were straight up from the short point.

Each side of the u-shaped combustion chamber broke out like this.

So I contacted HeatMaster again on 1/28 for an update on when to expect the new bottom bricks; they were due to arrive in January. They replied that they forgot to put them on the truck with the furnaces headed to NH. They said they would pack and ship them asap. I have since put a piece of old 3/4 in galvanized mesh over the opening to cut down on the coals and ashes falling through.

I heard back from the folks at Heatmaster and they are going to send me a replacement brick. There is now a dealer nearby and they are going to ship it to him in January with a shipment of stoves.

Thanks for all of your insight. I'll post again when the brick arrives.

It is not normal but I have seen it happen before. I think they improved the mixture a lot since then too. It should be covered under warranty so I would let your dealer know about it right away. It is not an easy item to ship without UPS breaking it so getting it ordered before your dealer has more stoves comes in would be the best option.
My 'local' dealer lives many hours away in the next state, so I am hoping they will send them to me.

The two center pieces by the nozzle are tapered and lift out. If you call them with your serial # they should be able to send new ones to drop in.
Not difficult at all.
So,do you just reach through the nozzle and lift?

I have contacted Heatmaster via email and sent them pictures. I am still waiting for a reply.

Should the Refractory be cracking and falling apart after 2 years's use? Is this normal wear for a g-200?

I can't for the life of me figure out how to post pictures. So here is a link to picts of the broken refractory.

HeatMaster / Replace or repair refractory nozzle?
« on: December 08, 2018, 06:42:36 AM »
I just started the 3rd season on my G-200 and a chunk about the size of a softball broke out of the refractory nozzle into the gasifier chamber. I believe from what I've read that it is replaceable. I hate to shut it down to replace it during the winter. Is there anything I can do to get it through the winter and fix it at the end of the winter? Does anyone know the exact size of the nozzle opening? Maybe I could use a piece of steel over the opening as a temporary fix.

I replaced the controller with the one mentioned above. It works great!

I ended up ordering this http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=310278036631&ssPageName=ADME:L:OU:US:1123 Central Boiler LED Controller with Temp Sensing Wire .
I emailed them and they told me it would replace what I have.
